Alumni Spotlight

Dr. Sarah Bowman

Katherine Hinzman ’15

“The CSU History Department provided me with a foundational methodological approach that I continue to exercise to this day. The relationships I established with professors there allowed me to develop essays in a way that set me on the right track to writing and exploring larger and broader topics and theories in academia. I particularly benefitted…from the department’s encouragement to undertake history courses as a visiting student at Oxford through CSU's Center for Global Engagement. This is what ultimately led me to apply and pursue my Masters at Oxford following my graduation from CSU and continue with my doctoral research in the UK.”

Katherine is now an art history PhD candidate at the University of York, focusing on the Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones.
